Very nice! I also made one with my old man for mom. Mesquite and walnut. It needs some grips on the bottom.

I like the contrast of those two woods. I also put feet on the bigger ones also routed handles into the bottoms

Looks great, but be careful with adding the trim as a edge grain on an endgrain board, it can split off due to different movement of the grain.

Thank you for the advice. I had not heard of this being an issue.

Looks awesome. Since you arenít cutting thick material use a diablo skill saw blade on the table saw. Loads cheaper therefore you can get finer blades and swap them more often.
